Hosted by Greg Knieriemen and Sarah Vela. Ed Saipetch is taking a well-earned break, so it's just the gruesome twosome this week.

This week Sarah and Greg are talking about Uber and Google stepping on each other's expanding, far-reaching and ultimately driverless toes.

Meanwhile, will there ever come a time when a robot can cook as well as a human? Well, maybe if they watch enough YouTube videos and keep on learning - and avoid clicking on cat clips.

And is the expansion of city-wide broadband internet access across the US really the way to go? Is an added level of competition needed?

The special guest this week is Brian Gracely, Senior Director, Cloud and Developer Enablement, at EMC who'll chew over with the team the challenges of Open Source in the enterprises.
